A SCRATCH

Today Kak Lina and I had a meeting at this place called Saloma Bistro at Jalan Ampang, with all the ASEAN Office Directors. I was quite excited, actually, to finally meet them face to face after exchanging a few thousands of emails.

We arrived there quite early. Parked the car and went straight to the meeting room.

I introduced myself to Brunei's Director and she said to me "Oh Hanis... We finally meet. I'm quite surprised though. You sound a bit elderly on the phone."

That was.... interesting.

I wonder if my writing sounds a bit elderly as well. Is it?


So anyway, after the meeting we had this wonderful lunch.

They served lemang, delicious rendang, ketupat and kuah kacang. Well there were more dishes, just that I ate those only.

After lunch, we excused ourselves since there were a lot more to do back in the office.


We reached the parking lot, and I saw something. Something so disturbing that I wouldn't be able to sleep at night. Something so disturbing that it'll haunt me in my dreams, sorry, nightmares. It was a SCRATCH. Yes, a scratch on the front side of my car. It was huge, so prominent and I thought my eyeballs were about to pop out.


"WHAT???!! WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?! I DON'T REMEMBER HITTING SOMETHING OR HAVING SOMETHING HIT ME!!! GREAT, JUST GREAT!! ANOTHER SCRATCH AFTER TWO SCRATCHES AT THE BACK! MAYBE I SHOULD JUST SCRATCH ALL OVER THE CAR THEN PEOPLE WON'T REALIZE THESE ARE SCRATCHES! WAY TO GO TO RUIN MY MOO..."

Suddenly, I heard Kak Lina said "Err.. Hanis, THIS is your car." while pointing at the another white Viva beside it.
